    The Church of Santa Barbara is an exceptional example of the Baroque style. Built as part of the convent of the Salesas Reales (now occupied by the Supreme Court) it draws attention by its size, by own enclosure that is (with a main entrance and a former courtyard) and its spectacular interior, in which we can find two tombs of Kings, Fernando VI and Bárbara de Braganza, of the few that there are outside the Royal pantheon. The tomb of Bárbara de Braganza is more complicated view being in a domestic Chapel, which is not always open.

    It is a real architectural marvel of the Baroque, was to build by Bárbara de Braganza, spouse of King Fernando VI. Both are here buried by expressed desire of them. It is a single nave and its beauty is spectacular. It is to them that I like about Madrid

    Excellent work of art in the heart of Madrid. It is not as well known or famous as other churches in the city, but it is an excellent visit with some works and a spectacular beauty. Christmas should not miss the Nativity which lay inside.

  • Today 10/12/16 the façade is in restoration, but there is mass; inside is the mausoleum of King Fernado VI; beautiful rich temple with art and very good to visit history

  • Baroque church, located in the old convent of the Salesas Reales, today seat of the Supreme Court. Highlighting its architecture and façade, but above all the mausoleums of Fernando VI and his spouse Barbara of Braganza and also of the General O'Donell

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
